Brassicas ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden ) This evening I transplanted the brassica seedlings into the main bed. I usually have at least 6 extra seedlings as spares just in case some get trampled by birds or destroyed by something. After finishing with the transplanting, I was wondering how should I plant the seedlings in the aquaponics grow beds when it is time to plant. Brassica in aquaponics ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden ) From what I had read, it takes at least 3 months for the aquaponics bed to mature to support planting, some mentioned 2 months but I am going to say I can't wait So I took one of the brassica seedling and carefully remove all the starting media from it. It was easy to do that by just dipping it into a container of water a couple of times. With the roots exposed, I carefully removed the peebles until deep enough and planted it. Now let's see which will grow better, the traditional way or aquaponics.
